CMU Welcomes Volleyball Challenge Tournament

The 2011 CMU men’s volleyball team is amidst preparation for opening weekend in the preseason schedule as they host the CMU Challenge Cup this weekend. The Blazers will tune-up for their upcoming MCAC season against the likes of the Lakeland Rustlers of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference, the Red River Rebels of the local Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference and the Lakehead Thunderwolves, a club team from the Thunder Bay-based university.

The Blazers welcome back a rotation loaded with quality and experience. 2010 Most Valuable Player Todd Reimer (pictured) will look to build on a very successful second-season with CMU that saw him emerge as arguably the most dominant left-side in the conference. Other returnees include left-side Brad Muller, powerful opposite Shawn Franz and middles Kailan Janzen and Josh Krueger, fifth-year libero Josh Ewert and setter Corey Dueck, who led the Blazers in both assists and blocks after taking over the setting duties last January.

Tournament ($7) and Day Passes ($5) are available at the admissions counter.
